The 2017 Ford Escape MPG Ratings are Truly Stunning
Naperville and Oswego drivers in search of a family crossover boasting outstanding efficiency will be thrilled with the 2017 Ford Escape mpg ratings. Stellar efficiency was clearly a driving motivation throughout the design of the vehicle, but there are still three engines available to ensure that you can harness the power you need.
The Escape S is fitted as standard with a 2.5L iVCT four-cylinder powerhouse, which is able to put Naperville and Oswego drivers in touch with up to 168 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque. Those are strong numbers for an entry-level crossover model, but Ford has pulled out all the stops to make sure efficiency isn’t affected.
As with all of the 2017 Ford Escape’s engines, the 2.5L iVCT is paired to a state-of-the-art 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. It refines fuel-consumption to ensure up to a generous 21 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.
Drivers focused on fuel-economy should opt for the 1.5L EcoBoost, which is available with either the Escape SE or the Escape Titanium. Auto Start-Stop technology helps reduce emissions and conserve fuel, so you’ll be able to achieve mileage ratings of up to 23 mpg in the city and 30 on the highway with FWD or 22 mpg city and 28 mpg highway with the optional Intelligent Four Wheel Drive system.
At the same time, direct injection and turbocharging takes your output to a healthy 179 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque.
2.0L Twin-Scroll EcoBoost
While the 1.5L EcoBoost covers efficiency, the available 2.0L EcoBoost has been designed around the needs of drivers who like to be pulled to the back of their seats whenever they hit the gas; it is able to put up to 245 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque at their disposal.
As with the 1.5L engine, Auto Start-Stop technology comes standard, so you’ll still make up to 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway with FWD or 20 mpg city and 27 mpg highway with Intelligent Four Wheel Drive.
